Florida Marine veteran who killed 2 police officers should get death penalty, jury decides

A Marine Corps veteran who fatally shot two Florida police officers should get the death penalty, a jury at the Osceola County Courthouse decided Wednesday.

Everett Glenn Miller, 48, was found guilty of murder in September for the August 2017 killing of Kissimmee officers Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard, 36, and Officer Matthew Baxter, 26.

A judge will ultimately decide whether to follow the jury’s unanimous recommendation of the death penalty or sentence Miller to life in prison on Dec. 20.

Baxter was conducting a routine check on three people in August 2017 when Miller then drove up and asked why Baxter was “messing with people,” according to the Orlando Sentinel. Baxter called Howard for backup. After an argument, Miller pulled out a firearm and shot both officers in both the head and face, according to prosecutors. He was later arrested at a bar.

Miller’s defense lawyers argued that the Marine veteran was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which led to a mental breakdown in the summer of 2017.

Everett Miller 

INDIANA POLICE DOG SHOT DEAD WHILE CHASING SUSPECT IN WOODS 

Colleagues, friends and family testified that Miller had a successful career, which took a turn for the worse when Miller left a defense contracting job where he targeted enemy combatants with drone strikes. In the months before the killings, Miller lost his job at a packaging company, became homeless and broke up with his girlfriend, according to those close to him. He expressed remorse over killing innocent bystanders.

Witnesses said that leading up to the killings, Miller shocked those who knew him with anti-government and anti-law enforcement social media posts, talked about killing white men and expressed anger at high-profile police brutality cases that involved unarmed African Americans.

One month before the shooting, he was involuntarily committed for running in the streets with a high-powered rifle wearing only boxers. Worried that he might have PTSD because of his increased anger and irritability, Miller went to the Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center several times beginning in May 2017. The last time Miller went to the VA seeking help was four days before the shooting, clinical neuropsychologist Robert Cohen said.

MASSACHUSETTS FIRE LIEUTENANT DIES IN BLAZE HOURS BEFORE PLANNED DISNEY VACATION

State Attorney Ryan Williams argued that Miller had family members who cared about him and received treatment from the VA, but he missed appointments and refused to take medication.

“It’s worth noting every misstep we saw once Mr. Miller’s service was over was steeped in blame,” Williams said. “It was always someone else’s fault.”

Defense Attorney Roseanne Eckert argued that Miller was a loving father and son with an exceptional military career, but extreme emotional distress caused him to be manic and paranoid.

“There’s no doubt that Glenn Miller was out of his mind that summer,” she said.

Baxter had served with the Kissimmee Police Department for three years at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife Sadia Baxter, who is a detective with the department, and four daughters, who in 2017 ranged in age from 7 months to 7 years old.

Jeffrey Epstein case: Sasse warns prison bureau director to ‘come prepared’ for Senate grilling

Days before the Bureau of Prisons [BOP] is set to face its first public grilling about the death of Jeffrey Epstein, Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., sent a heated letter to the department’s director warning her to “come prepared” to give “substantial answers” about the Epstein case during her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee this coming Tuesday.

“To pretend like this issue, which is by far the public’s top concern with your agency, won’t be a significant focus of attention at this hearing is naïve – to the point of being laughable,” Sasse wrote to BOP Director Dr. Kathleen Hawk Sawyer. “While there may be particular details that you cannot yet answer, deflecting difficult questions won’t cut it.”

The letter was sent Monday, a week before the annual BOP oversight hearing because, according to Sasse’s office, the Justice Department indicated its  “unwillingness to provide substance” on the Epstein death investigation during questioning.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons has been under fire since Epstein was found dead in his jail cell on Aug. 10 at the Metropolitan Correctional Center [MCC] in Manhattan. The Medical Examiner in New York classified Epstein’s death as a suicide by hanging, but Epstein’s brother, Mark, said he could have been murdered.

“There are a whole lot of people out there who breathed a sigh of relief who believe their secrets died in that jail cell with him,” Sasse told Fox News in a phone interview about Epstein, who was accused of operating a child sex trafficking network. “It’s unconscionable that the guy that had all this information on co-conspirators was not guarded each and every minute.”

The BOP has faced scrutiny since over its handling of Epstein while in custody. In fact, Attorney General William Bar said he was appalled by Epstein’s death and said there were serious irregularities at the MCC.

EPSTEIN VICTIMS SAY FRENCH INVESTIGATION INTO SEX NETWORK HAS STALLED

“Epstein’s death makes it significantly harder to prosecute his co-conspirators,” Sasse wrote. “Wealthy and powerful men raped innocent children, and it is an outrage that so much of the evidence of these crimes died with Epstein while in your agency’s custody.”

However, three months after Epstein’s death, details about the irregularities have been hard to come by as the DOJ, FBI and BOP have conducted their investigations.

Sasse wrote that he wanted to know, “whether steps were being taken to preserve evidence,” in Epstein’s jail cell and otherwise.

“These and so many other questions deserve answers. And yet, months later, we’re still in the dark about what happened to Epstein,” the senator wrote.

Among the questions: why was Epstein put on, and then taken off, suicide watch in the days leading up to his death?

Also, did investigators have video evidence definitively proving that Epstein killed himself? It has been reported that at least one of the cameras malfunctioned inside the MCC.

Unions representing BOP guards said their concerns about rampant staffing shortages at MCC and other BOP facilities around the country largely were ignored and made a high-profile death such as Epstein’s inevitable. Both guards tasked with watching Epstein reportedly fell asleep and failed to watch over Epstein every 30 minutes.

Nine days after Epstein’s death, Barr replaced acting BOP director Hugh Hurwitz with Sawyer, the third BOP director in two years. She previously led the BOP from 1992 to 2003.

“Dr. Sawyer ought not to show up,” Sasse said, “unless she’s willing to show up and answer questions about this.”

Castro fails to make cut as DNC announces participants for next debate

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6095562303001_6095556390001-vs Castro fails to make cut as DNC announces participants for next debate fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/julian-castro fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew O'Reilly 0fa35f98-5062-5ed6-976f-da816c67d93a

Ten candidates qualified for next week’s Democratic presidential primary debate, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro is not one of them.

Castro and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas are two candidates who debated last month who will not appear on the debate stage for the next round next week. Castro failed to meet the threshold requirements set forth by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, while O’Rourke dropped out of the race last month.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, former Maryland Rep. John Delaney and author Marianne Williamson also failed to qualify.

This month, candidates were required to have reached 3 percent support in at least four qualifying national polls since Sept. 13 or 5 percent in two early-nominating state polls since that date, while collecting contributions from at least 165,000 unique donors — with at least 600 each in a minimum of 20 states.

CASTRO LAYS OFF STAFF IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND SOUTH CAROLINA

Some candidates have criticized Perez for what they’ve viewed as overly stringent requirements. Some argue that the donor emphasis has forced them to spend disproportionately for online fundraising efforts that drain resources they could be using to reach voters in other ways.

Perez says hopefuls have had ample time to demonstrate their supporter, both in polls and through small-dollar contributors, and that any Democrat falling short this far into the campaign almost certainly isn’t positioned to win the nomination or defeat President Trump in November 2020.

Perez has announced even stiffer requirements for a Dec. 19 debate. The polling marks:4 percent in four national polls or 6 percent in two early state polls taken after Oct. 16. The donor threshold: 200,000 unique donors, with at least 800 from each of 20 states.

The top-tier candidates – former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — are not threatened by those goals. Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota have met them as well.

But the higher targets put pressure on several other candidates to broaden their support or risk falling out of any reasonable contention with less than three months to go before the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses.

Two new candidates also could be vying for December spots.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick launched his campaign Thursday and filed to appear on New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary ballot. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering a bid as well, already having filed paperwork for some Super Tuesday primaries.

Next Wednesday’s debate in Atlanta will be broadcast on MSNBC, 9-11 p.m. EST.

A now-deleted tweet from a former Republican strategist and current ABC News analyst was an example of “blunt sexism” against a female millennial member of Congress, according to Jesse Watters.

On Wednesday, Matthew Dowd tweeted that Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., is, “a perfect example [of] why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn’t necessarily get you the leaders we need.”

Dowd, a self-described independent who previously worked as a strategist for Republicans, including President George W. Bush, sent the tweet after Stefanik had contentious exchanges with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., during the public impeachment hearing

Shortly after witnesses were sworn in, Stefanik asked Schiff if he would be “prohibiting witnesses from answering members’ questions,” which she said occurred during the impeachment inquiry’s closed-door hearings over the past few weeks.

ABC NEWS POLITICAL ANALYST HITS ELISE STEFANIK IN CONTROVERSIAL TWEET SPARKING BACKLASH

An irritated Schiff later cut off the New York congresswoman after she referenced reports that he or his staff have had contact with the Ukraine phone call whistleblower.

“Only one member and their staff on this committee has direct knowledge of the identity of the whistleblower,” Stefanik said, as Schiff interrupted her by slamming his gavel and stating, “the gentlewoman will suspend.” Stefanik also brought up Schiff’s “parody” reading of President Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky.

More from Media

On “The Five,” Watters said Dowd’s comment was an example of “blunt sexism,” adding Stefanik is, “actually a very competent, Harvard-educated, aggressive defender [against] impeachment.”

“She’s on the intelligence committee,” he said of the 35-year-old lawmaker. “She wasn’t elected because she was a woman or because she was young. She’s obviously very talented.”

Watters later added that Stefanik “didn’t do anything in that hearing … to invite any sort of ridicule.”

After Stefanik was criticized, fellow lawmakers including Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., publicly defended her.

“Elise did a great job laying out the facts. And, not least of all, this comment is reprehensible,” Meadows wrote on Twitter in response to Dowd.

Trump Asks Supreme Court To Stop The Release Of His Tax Returns

Westlake Legal Group 5dcdd5191f00003507dee746 Trump Asks Supreme Court To Stop The Release Of His Tax Returns

President Donald Trump has filed a request with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking it to stop a subpoena seeking the release of his tax returns, several outlets reported Thursday.

The request his lawyers filed is a last-ditch effort to reverse a lower court ruling directing his accountants to give New York prosecutors eight years of his tax returns, which he has long refused to make public, despite precedent set by every other modern president.

The move comes weeks after a federal appeals court shut down Trump’s claims that presidents are immune from criminal investigation and ruled that his accounting firm, Mazars, must comply with the subpoena from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

Trump is asking the court to decide the case by late June, The Associated Press reported, in compliance with a deal he made with Vance, who agreed not to enforce the subpoena if Trump immediately asked the Supreme Court to hear the case this term. 

Pressure on Trump to release his tax returns, which would shed important light on any conflicts of interest he may have, is at a high this week. On Wednesday, an appeals court ruled in a separate case that Congress has the right to access his tax returns. 

Given Wednesday’s development, The Washington Post reported, chances are high the Supreme Court will agree to hear the case. However, it cannot make that decision for another month.

If the court declines, the accounting firm will have to hand over the documents to Vance, who is investigating whether Trump made alleged hush money payments to two women prior to the 2016 election who said they had sexual relationships with him ― something the president has vehemently denied.

Mississippi couple facing jail time for living in RV after fire partially burned home

A Mississippi couple whose home was partially gutted in a fire are facing fines, court costs and possible jail time for temporarily living in an RV while they dealt with insurance issues.

Pam Navari says she and her husband lived in an RV in their driveway as they fought their insurance company over the settlement claim for a Christmas Eve fire.

The living arrangement was subsequently found to be in violation of their Madison homeowners association code, WAPT-TV reported.

Navari says the city alderman and mayor signed off on the plan and said they could get a permit if the plan was approved by the Annandale Estates association.

She says the family soon received a letter from the association saying the RV had broken its code; the letter said association officials “felt sympathy for us and our situation, but we needed to leave.”

A copy of the letter, posted on Navari’s Facebook page, urges the family to “remove the temporary housing structure by Sept. 5, 2019, to avoid any penalties.”

In a Facebook post, Navari said the association’s president previously told her the board had approved her family’s living arrangement. After obtaining the RV she found out he had lied and was no longer the president, she said.

“He is no longer the president; the board members were not even aware that he was planning (and) had moved out of Mississippi,” she wrote.

Navari did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Fox News attempted to reach the association; questions were directed to Madison City Hall.

Miriam Ethridge, Madison’s code enforcement officer, told Fox News that the story has been “blown out of proportion.”

She said Navari’s family was “cited for zoning issues. She had a court date, which they did not come to, and the judge put out a bench warrant for them.”

“They haven’t been levied any fines, they haven’t been threatened in any way, they’re going to get to tell the judge their story, and he’s going (to tell them) what they have to do,” Ethridge said. “You’re only hearing one side, and it is an exaggerated side. I can promise you, all this is going to come out sooner or later.”

The Navaris are scheduled to appear in court next month, WAPT-TV reported.

Pete Hegseth had this sewn into his jacket for red carpet appearance

“Fox & Friends” weekend host Pete Hegseth shocked fans at the Fox Nation Patriot Awards last week when he revealed an American flag sewn into the inside of his jacket.

As emcee of the event, Hegseth spoke about American patriotism and his time serving as a reserve military officer before flashing the surprise lining of his suit jacket.

“I just walked the red carpet where normally they ask the question ‘who are you wearing?'”

“Well,” he continued, “they did not ask me that tonight but I’m gonna tell them who I’m wearing anyway,” Hegseth said, revealing a large American flag as the audience erupted in loud applause.

Last week, massive crowds of Fox News and Fox Nation fans lined up outside the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida, to take part in Fox Nation’s first-ever “Patriot Awards.” 

The red carpet event, dubbed the “Golden Globes of conservative media,” honored “everyday American heroes who have shown steadfast dedication to our nation.”

As a veteran and Fox Nation host, Hegseth felt personally connected to the cause, he explained.

“We showcased the unsung heroes who went above and beyond for our country. As an Army veteran, I could not have been more honored to emcee the historic evening. St. Petersburg was a natural place to host it — a town full of patriots and Fox News fans,” Hegseth said.

FOX FANS FLOOD ST. PETE FOR PATRIOT AWARDS

Other famous guests in attendance included country music singer-songwriter John Rich, who performed at the show, the cast of “Duck Dynasty” and many more, who came out to support American patriotism at its best.

FNC will present a one-hour program dedicated to the Patriot Awards on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 10 p.m. ET.

‘Potomac River Rapist’ suspect caught in South Carolina decades after DC-area attacks

The FBI and Washington, D.C. police have arrested a suspect known as the “Potomac River Rapist” whom they had been searching for since the 1990s.

Giles Daniel Warrick, 60, is accused of murdering one woman and sexually assaulting eight others in the Washington, D.C., and Montgomery County, Md., areas between 1991 and 1998.

Giles Daniel Warrick

Warrick was connected to the crimes via forensic evidence, officials announced Thursday.

Warrick is suspected of killing 29-year-old Christine Mirzayan in the summer of 1998 as she walked home from a cookout in Georgetown, D.C. He’s also accused of sexually assaulting eight other women, including an18-year-old babysitter and two women whose children were in the home at the time of the attack. His victims ranged in age from 18 to 58, officials said.

At the time of the attacks, Warrick worked in landscaping and as a contractor in the D.C. area. He had recently moved to South Carolina, where he was arrested, Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones said, according to NBC 4 Washington.

The FBI said seven of the nine attacks were linked back to Warrick by DNA. All of the attacks were linked to his violent methods, they said.

A DNA test taken by a family member of Warrick led investigators to him. Officials compared DNA collected from the crime scenes to DNA publicly available in databases, Jones said.

DC police had offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to Warrick’s arrest and conviction.

Investigators are now examining other unsolved rape cases in the D.C. area to determine whether they could be the work of Warrick, they said.

U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent were the first witnesses to offer their testimony in the open and were grilled for several hours over their knowledge of President Trump‘s conduct with Ukraine.

NBC News political reporter Jonathan Allen noted in an analysis, however, that the hearing was “substantive, but it wasn’t dramatic.”

“The first two witnesses called Wednesday testified to Trump’s scheme, but lacked the pizazz necessary to capture public attention,” Allen wrote. “At a time when Democrats are simultaneously eager to influence public opinion in favor of ousting the president and quietly apprehensive that their hearings could stall or backfire, the first round felt more like the dress rehearsal for a serious one-act play than the opening night of a hit Broadway musical.”

When the report was shared on social media, the “pizzazz” headline triggered critics, including by some of Allen’s co-workers.

“This is an embarrassing and unserious headline. Do better,” MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin reacted.

“Not sure that ‘pizzazz’ was the point,” MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes also swiped.

MSNBC analyst Ben Rhodes hit Allen after he had defended his reporting and stressed how the “presentation aspect” of the impeachment hearings was important to Democrats trying to sway public opinion on impeachment.

“Maybe it’s more important for the American people to learn the facts than to have an analysis of pizazz,” Rhodes told Allen. “That’s the purpose of public hearings and we’d be a lot better off if it was the basis for our politics.”

Frequent MSNBC guests also blasted Allen’s report.

“You know who was the most boring witness I ever saw? Alexander Butterfield. And he brought down the Nixon presidency,” Ronald Klain tweeted. “I’m sorry that saving our democracy doesn’t have enough “pizzazz” for you….”

Above the Law executive editor Elie Mystal had a similar response, invoking the Nuremberg Trials that prosecuted high-ranking Nazi officials following World War II.

“Analysis: Nuremberg Trials lay out disturbing details, but lack pizzazz necessary to capture public attention. Unlike the Blitz, which, like, totally persuaded people to get out of bed and pay attention to the nightly news. -@jonallendc, Nov 20th, 1945, probably,” Mystal wrote.

Allen shot back, “Here’s a sick thing to write to a Jew.”

NBC News did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Reuters faced similar backlash for its own report that declared, “Consequential, but dull: Trump impeachment hearings begin without a bang.”
